  1. Choose the Right Boarding Facility: Before booking your dog's stay, take the time to research and visit different boarding facilities. Look for a place like Dora's Dog Boarding that offers spacious accommodations, a clean and safe environment, and plenty of opportunities for exercise and socialization.

  2. Provide Familiar Items: Help your dog feel more at home during their boarding stay by providing familiar items such as their own bedding, favorite toys, and even a piece of clothing with your scent on it. These familiar scents and items can provide comfort and reduce stress for your pet while they're away from home.

  3. Maintain Routine: Dogs thrive on routine, so try to maintain as much of their regular schedule as possible while they're boarding. Let the staff at Dora's Dog Boarding know about your dog's feeding, exercise, and medication schedule so they can provide consistent care.

  4. Stay Connected: While you're away, stay connected with your dog by checking in with the staff at Dora's Dog Boarding for updates and photos of your pet. Many boarding facilities, including ours, offer webcam access so you can see your dog enjoying their stay in real-time.

  5. Plan for Reintegration: When you return to pick up your dog from boarding, plan for some quality time together to help reintegrate them back into your home routine. Take them for a walk, play their favorite games, and give them plenty of love and attention to ease the transition back home.
